Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Special Tour Dates Roll Call...? Please?

It must be obvious from my posts -
But I never saw the Dead; would not have been interested at the time.
Favorite era: the early one, of course! '67 is my favorite year for the Dead...

And, Tell - I'd rather you didn't "bump" this thread later, since it's a long one, unless you really feel latecomers will be missing out. I for one, have a big post coming up tomorrow, that I wish wouldn't get bumped to the bottom right away....

Request noted, and I am happy to comply--besides, it'll be around for a few days regardless!

But, thanks so much for letting us know about your history with the band's live shows--I would never have guessed that!

Given the amazing amt you have contributed here...even more significantly, your experience puts the lie to the notion that seeing the DEAD is in any way a requirement of becoming perhaps the most astute and outstanding critic/commentator on their material...

Not "seeing" the band removes layer upon layer of subjectivity. Best show--I was there, of course. That's a standard reply for many.

But LiA brings a fresh, objective point of view into the mix--as well as a scholar's knowledge and research.

How did you "get interested" then? That must be a good story too. "Didn't see them", "wouldn't have been interested."

What happened??
